Savion Glover Choreographer

SoLo IN TIME (2011)  creation

European Premiere


The exceptional meeting of the american tap dance star with flamenco musicians


PURE RYTHMS


Whether an anomaly or a rarity Savion Glover is unique. A tap dancer and a choreographer, he grew up under the Broadway sun-lights, wher e he made his debut in 1992 at the age of 9 in the musical The Tap Dance Kid. Savion Glover  established tap-dancing as a noble art in the wake of legendary figures such as the Nicolas Brothers. He also added to the genre a contemporary intensity. After Bare Soundz, a manifesto of danced percussions, presented at the Théâtre de la Ville in 2010, he is back with a vengeance  with SoLo iN TiME. He most adequately brings together tap dance and flamenco whose zapateado (foot tapping) patters into a delicately nuanced range of sounds. Supported by his accomplice Marshall Davis Jr., a flamenco-pop female vocalist and percussionist, and by two other musicians, Savion Glover erupts, inventing a new sort of one-man band  he might call a dancer . He also, in his twelve scenes, pays tribute to virtuosity, the pure thrill of discovery and risk, pure bliss.
